So, does that mean that i have to pay the "inventors" from now on if i comb
my hair the way they describe? Or does it mean i am not allowed to comb my
hair that way at all? Or does it mean i am not allowed to pay a friend who
cuts and combs my gair that way? Or what? As far as patents go, this seems
to me a good example of the many absurd patents that exist.
Tell you the truth: i'll conmtinue to live my life in relative ignorance of
such patents as may presume to proscribe what i do or say or think -
patents that to me are nothing but an absurdity that i am actualy quite
sure will be forgotten a few hundred years hence.
One can be worried about many things, but there are more important things
to worry about than unenforceable patent concerning hair combing. Amazing
to think that anybody would even grant a patent for ideas like that...
